Ah yes, Gardner, there are many of us here on the board that bemoan our animals when we want to go somewhere, but love them the rest of the time. I have 5 dogs and 7 cats right now, which I think is might be the E-R.org board record. sigh... And none of them fosters, so that isn't even a valid excuse.
